Did you catch yesterday's triangle of Venus, Jupiter, and the crescent moon?
So why didn't I set up the camera and tripod to get a photo of it, too? Because I was relaxing in an outdoor hot tub, watching the trio sink to the west through the waving fronds of a palm tree (northerners, especially those shoveling snow today, should pretend I didn't just tell you that -- or at least ignore the fact that this was on DECEMBER 1st!).
If you were "down under," you got to see the heavens smiling back at you -- they formed a smiley face!
Another nice northern hemisphere view, from a day earlier (the closest we got to a smiley face), is here.
